Oakland - Poetry Flash with Marcia Falk and Steven Rood
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Sunday, September 7 at 3pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland hosts another installment of the always excellent Poetry Flash with Marcia Falk and Steven Rood on Sunday, September 7th at 3pm.

Marcia Falk is a poet, a scholar, and a translator from both Hebrew and Yiddish. Her latest book is The Days Between: Blessings, Poems, and Directions of the Heart for the Jewish High Holiday Season, a volume for those seeking to connect more deeply with their Judaism, and for all readers in search of a contemplative approach to the themes of the fall season. Among her other publications are three books of poems, a translation of The Song of Songs praised by both Isaac Bashevis Singer and Adrienne Rich, a translation of the twentieth century mystic Zelda Schneurson Mishkovsky from the Hebrew, and another of the Yiddish modernist Malka Heifetz Tussman.

Steven Rood’s book of poems, I Say Your Name, is devoted to the memory of two men: the great poet Jack Gilbert, and to Rood’s own late psychotherapist. It is filled with vivid, loving re-creation, humor, and profound empathy. He has been for many years a member of the workshop begun by the legendary poet Jack Gilbert at San Francisco State in 1967 which continues to this day. He was a primary caregiver to Gilbert during his last Alzheimer’s days. While not available to order, copies of Steven's books will be for sale at the event.

Poetry Flash readings are wheelchair accessible; ASL interpreters may be requested one week in advance from editor@poetryflash.org. Visit Poetryflash.org for more events and reviews!

Monday, September 8, 7:30 p.m.

The Lotus and the Storm

Half a century after it began, the Vietnam War still has a hold on our national psyche. Lan Cao’s now-classic debut, Monkey Bridge, won her wide renown for “connecting . . . the opposite realities of Vietnam and America” (Isabel Allende). In her triumphant new novel, Cao transports readers back to the war, illuminating events central to twentieth-century history through the lives of one Vietnamese American family.

The Lotus and the Storm is part beautiful family saga, part coming-of-age story, part love story, but above all a searing indictment of the American campaign in Vietnam and its incalculable toll on generations past and future. A powerful read from start to end.” —Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner

Lan Cao is a novelist and a renowned expert in international law, trade, and economic development. A professor at the Dale E. Fowler School of Law at Chapman University, she lives in southern California.
